PREFACE
It is withheavy hearts that we write these words in tribute to our colleague on the Panel of arbiters, the Honourable Donald I. Brenner, former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of British Columbia. An outstanding lawyer, jurist and reformer, Don contributed greatly to our work under the Memorandum of Understanding. As recently as two days before his sudden passing, we and Don met all day, and made great progress, aided by Don’s typically insightfulcomments and collegial approach.Although he is, tragically, no longer with us, we can say that this report reflects Don’s views,and for that we are deeply grateful. We offer his family our profound condolences.Claire LHeureux-DubéFrank Iacobucci
